If you’ve never been to a cooking class, Spice Bazaar is a great place to start. The small, hands-on classes are loads of fun, and you get to eat whatever you cook – usually several courses, so come hungry – accompanied by matching wines. Some classes focus on regional cuisine, such as Thai street food or Spanish paella, while others allow your tastebuds to go globetrotting – the Curry Lovers class includes Ethiopian pastries, Sri Lankan seafood curry and Sumatran beef rendang. No matter which mouthwatering cooking class you choose, the dishes are sure to help spice up your repertoire.

What: “They are hands on, fun and engaging,” says Patrick Aldred, of the cooking classes he and his partner Jill run at Spice Bazaar in Seddon. “People have an absolute ball, and take away heaps of new skills.” The cooking school, which the duo has run for the past 4½ years, grew out of their spice business (“Moroccans come to us for their ras el hanout!”) and it’s those spices you’ll learn to use in such themed classes as Sri Lankan cooking (July 4), Moroccan Cuisine (July 26) and Exotic Persian and Middle Eastern menu (July 25).
